Financial Aid, Scholarships, and Tuition

Financial Aid and Scholarships

  • Percentage of Students Receiving Financial Assistance:  49%
  • Average Grant per Student:  $10,234

The Heights is committed to a quality-driven admissions process that provides access to a Heights education for as many deserving boys as possible. The Heights uses need-based aid and scholarships to make attendance possible for qualified students who would not otherwise be able to do so for financial reasons. Need-based aid and scholarships also ensure a student body that reflects a broad social and economic mix. Financial aid is intended to supplement a family’s own resources, and recipients range from families whose ability to pay school costs is extremely limited, to families who may need only a minor subsidy to meet our tuition requirements.

Begin our FACTS Financial Aid Application Process here.

We are very pleased to offer two Upper School scholarships: The Cavalier Scholarship and the Blatty Scholarship. Both awards are need and merit-based, and will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate academic promise, moral character, and the zeal and spirit of a future Heights leader.

  • Every qualified applicant for financial aid will be automatically considered for these Scholarships.
